More consumers expect sustainability from their products and consumer pressure is influencing tuna markets in Australia, reports the Sydney Morning Herald. A new Canned Tuna Guide scores brands on methods used for catching tuna, sustainability, labeling and support for marine reserves.
There are about 50 species of tuna, some more sustainable than others. Our tuna business depends on sustainability, and we specifically target our catch with a focus on health for both the fishing stocks and our customers: Our albacore tuna is troll-caught, individually by hook, resulting in negligible bycatch.
Seafood Watch from the Monterey Bay Aquarium provides advice on the sustainable choices for your dining selections, and we’re proud to be a partner.
